Someone else thought they could go on vacation and then walk away without incident. I don't think so. The concept: bathe his entire cube in aluminum foil. Every object, every surface, shiny side out. And then put a strobe light underneath, to increase the viewing pleasure (and possibly induce seizure). My favorite was the single post-it note to the left of his monitor, with a lovingly wrapped push pin.
Of course, the beauty of pulling office pranks is that the act of pranking someone usually leads to lots and lots of new prank ideas. Oh man, I have a great idea that I'm going to hold onto for a while. A few more pics from the event:
Coincidentally, RTC B4 is now home to the largest ball of aluminum foil on Microsoft campus. Come check it out before the tourists take over and it becomes un-cool.
